description:
This is one of expressional parts of the study. These data were correlated to epigenetic marks and CG density of genes in analyzed cells. The whole study has a following summary: To elucidate possible roles of DNA methylation and chromatin marks in transcription, we performed epigenetic profiling of chromosome 19 in human bronchial epithelial cells (HBEC) and in the colorectal cancer cell line HCT116 as well as its counterpart with double knockout of DNMT1 and DNMT3B (HCT116-DKO). We found that H3K9me3 forms intragenic chromatin blocks along genes with low CpG density in the gene body. Analysis of H3K36me3 profiles indicated that this mark associates either with active genes with low CpG density and H3K9me3 in the gene body or with active genes with high CpG density and DNA hypermethylation in the gene body. In HCT116 cells with double knockout of DNMT1 and DNMT3B, transcription of genes with low CpG density in the gene body was highly elevated and associated with promoter DNA demethylation and rearrangement of H3K9me3 and H3K36me3 occupation. Our finding suggests that similar to DNA methylation, H3K9me3 may play a role in intragenic gene regulation. Further, we observed that a combination of low CpG density in gene bodies together with H3K9me3 and H3K36me3 marking is a specific epigenetic feature of zinc finger (ZNF) genes, which comprise 90% of all genes carrying both histone marks on chromosome 19. For high CpG density genes, transcription and H3K36me3 occupancy were not changed in condition of partial or intensive loss of DNA methylation in gene bodies in the HCT116-DKO cell line. siRNA experiments with SETD2 knockdown in both HBEC and HCT116-DKO cell lines failed to reduce DNA methylation in gene bodies under conditions of H3K36me3 depletion. Our study suggests that the H3K36me3 and DNA methylation marks in gene bodies are established independently from each other and points to similar functional roles of intragenic DNA methylation and intragenic H3K9me3 for CpG-rich and CpG-poor genes, respectively.
